You will learn a lot at the Part 1 seminar, but you will learn everything about how to make your portfolio muscular at the In-Depth Seminar. Each seminar is self-contained — you will benefit by attending either one or both — but you will learn the most by attending both.


For decades, the financial services industry has sold risky investments, claiming that greater risk was the only path to greater gains. But high-risk strategies are vulnerable to huge losses that can devastate your portfolio.

Today, there’s a better approach. Brian Livingston’s new book Muscular Portfolios reveals the latest scientific evidence behind what experts call the Index Investing Revolution. In addition, is the first website to give away Wall Street’s secret buy-and-sell orders of low-cost index funds.
